Today's Children Of The Atom #1 Has A 1:7 Secret Variant Cover
Today sees the publication of the long-awaited Children Of The Atom #1 by Vita Ayala, Bernard Chang and Marcelo Maiolo. Pitched at the X-Men equivalent of Young Avengers, as the first issue suggests, it has many secrets to hold. Who they are, what they can do and potentially, how they can do it. More to come.
But they also have a secret variant cover, at a ratio of around 1:7 of the standard cover, according to retailer reports received by Bleeding Cool. Laid out like the original cover, it shows the X-Men characters who have inspired the new Children Of The Atom in the way they present themselves, name themselves and the power set they hold. Here is the secret variant.
And here is the standard cover for comparison, and to hammer home who is taken from who.
Naturally, eBay is already all over this, with one account selling 25 copies at $15 each this morning and copies selling for as much at $18. Just saying, if you were planning to pick up a copy, and this is a choice, it might be wise to pick this one up. You never know…
Marvel Comics has been known to drop surprise secret variant covers, as well as the dozens of other variant covers that it had previously announced, but they haven't for a while. Could this be the beginning of a new spate?
